K5 PROSTHETICS, a Division of MOS Declared the Leading Provider of a Prosthetic Bionic Foot - The PROPRIO FOOT

K5 PROSTHETICS, recognized by Ossur, as the “leading provider of the PROPRIO FOOT in the United States”. K5 PROSTHETICS is committed to improving the quality of life for every prosthetic patient they serve. In partnering with Ossur, K5 PROSTHETICS has been able to do just that. The PROPRIO FOOT is the first and only intelligent prosthetic foot with automatic ankle motion. This foot learns within just a few steps how a person walks and how to respond to what is happening on the ground. Adaptive, instinctive, intelligent, the PROPRIO FOOT is the closest thing yet to the human foot. This innovative product makes walking up and down ramps, stairs and across uneven surfaces easier for prosthetic patients. Patients also cite benefits in getting out of chairs, bending, kneeling and have shown greater endurance towards everyday activities.

Maximize independence…through timeliness, quality and a caring personal touch.

Livonia, MI (Vocus) October 26, 2010

A world first, the PROPRIO FOOT knows what it is doing. It recognizes changes underfoot and responds immediately. So, if someone starts walking down stairs for example, it adjusts the angle of the ankle at exactly the right moment. When walking up a slope, it automatically lifts the toe up that little bit further to clear the ground and then positions itself at a correct angle for the gradient, ensuring each step feels as natural as can be. The PROPRIO FOOT adjusts the ankle to help people both sit down and stand up again more easily. Overall, the effect is a feeling of improved proprioception – a conscious feel for where the foot is and what direction it is moving in. Our next Proprio Foot Evaluation Day will be November 2, 2010 in our Livonia office. Please call 800-592-2929 anytime for a free evaluation or email appt(at)moshealth(dot)com to make an appointment.
